Professional career

2008-2011: Grand Slam debut and top 100, first ATP title and top 50 debut

On his Grand slam debut at the 2008 French Open as a lucky loser he reached the second round defeating Filippo Volandri. In August 2008, following his wins at two consecutive Challengers in Vigo and in San Sebastián, he entered the top 100 on 25 August 2008 at World No. 88.

He competed at the 2009 Australian Open, but lost to Gilles Simon in the first round. At the 2009 French Open, he defeated Robby Ginepri in the first round, but lost in the second round against Paul-Henri Mathieu of France in three sets.

He made the final of the 2010 BCR Open Romania, where he lost to Juan Ignacio Chela.

In 2011, Andujar won his first ATP title at the Grand Prix Hassan II tournament in Morocco, defeating Italian Potito Starace in the final. As a result he entered the top 50 at World No. 48 on 25 April 2011.

The Spaniard reached two more ATP-level finals during the 2011 season, one at the 2011 Stuttgart Open and the other at the 2011 BCR Open Romania.

2012-2015: First Masters semifinal, second and third titles, First ATP 500 final

In January 2012, he was a finalist in doubles with Carlos Berlocq in Viña del Mar, Chile. In February, he was a quarterfinalist in the Abierto Mexicano Telcel.

In April 2012, he won his second title in Morocco, defeating Albert Ramos Viñolas in the final.

In May 2013, as a wildcard and as world No. 113 in the ATP Rankings, he reached the semifinals of an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament for the first time in his career in Madrid where he faced Rafael Nadal and lost 6-0, 6-4. His road to the semifinals saw him defeat 10th seed Marin ?ili?, John Isner, Daniel Gimeno-Traver and 14th seed Kei Nishikori.

He won his third title at the 2014 Swiss Open defeating Juan Mónaco.

Andújar reached his biggest final at the 2015 Barcelona Open where he was defeated by Kei Nishikori.

2016-2018: Hyatus due to surgery, Fourth title and first in four years

Between March 2016 and April 2017, Andújar underwent three elbow surgeries with three different doctors and considered retirement if the third surgery didn't work. Upon his return in January 2018, Andujar lost five of his first six matches at all levels.[2]

In April 2018, Andújar won his fourth ATP tournament and his first in for four years, beating Kyle Edmund in straight sets in the final in Marrakesh to become the lowest-ranked tour-level titlist at World No. 355 since then-World No. 550 Lleyton Hewitt at Adelaide in 1998.[2]

2019-2021: US Open fourth round, French Open doubles semifinal, Olympics debut

In September 2019, Andújar reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time, at the US Open by defeating Kyle Edmund, Lorenzo Sonego and Alexander Bublik in the first three rounds.[2]

In May 2021, Andujar upset Roger Federer in three sets at the Geneva Open and reached the semifinals of the event.

At the 2021 French Open, he continued his good form by coming back from two sets down to defeat Dominic Thiem in the opening round of the tournament. He also reached the semifinals as alternate in doubles with fellow Spaniard Pedro Martínez,[3] with whom he also made his Grand Slam doubles debut as a pair at the 2021 Australian Open. They defeated the 14th seeded Belgians S.Gillé/J.Vliegen in the third round and the pair of Rohan Bopanna/Franko Skugor in the quarterfinals. They entered the tournament as a replacement alternate pair for the top seeds Nikola Mekti?/Mate Pavi?.

He qualified to represent Spain in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in singles and doubles partnering with Roberto Carballés Baena.
